Wilson Evans “Buck” Lough

November 21, 1936 ~ December 10, 2013

Wilson Evans “Buck” Lough died on the 10th of December, 2013, attended by his wife of 51 years and their family. Buck was born in St. Clair County, Missouri to Harley and Louise (Evans) on the 21st of November, 1936. When he was a young teen, his family moved to Washington and settled initially in Zillah. In 1953, his family moved to the Columbia Basin and was among the first to take advantage of irrigation on the plateau. Buck graduated from Ephrata High School in 1954, and attended Washington State and Central Washington Universities before joining the National Guard. Afterwards, he began row crop farming near Quincy and, in 1962, he married Joy Cordell. They started their family in Quincy, spent a few years in Yakima and eventually settled in East Wenatchee in 1974. Buck and Joy spent the next 39 years growing their two sons, apples, pears and cherries. His early ties to the Quincy farming community provided the income to build up his own orchard operation. Forney Fruit & Produce, HAAS Fruit, and

Double-Diamond Fruit companies all benefitted from his steady hand as floor manager in their warehouses. His favorite pastimes were hunting, fishing, and boating on Lake Chelan with family and close friends. Buck was active in Quincy Lodge No. 161 F. & A.M., Astral Chapter No. 75 Order of the Eastern Star, and Masada Temple of Shriners International for 50 years.

Buck is survived by his wife, Joy (Cordell) Lough; his son, Rich and wife, Stacy and their four children, Connor, Aidan, Anna and Kate; his son, Shaun and wife, Monica and their three children, Rachel, Riley and Corey; and his sister, Jeanette Burk of Ephrata. He was preceded in death by his father, mother, and two sisters.

Memorials should be made to: “Our House” at 1708 Castlerock Avenue, Wenatchee, WA 98801, or through their website at

Family and friends will celebrate Buck’s life at the Masonic Center in Wenatchee on Thursday, the 19th of December, 2013, at 1:00 p.m.
